    International Galaxy S20 Ultra model picks up FCC certification

    Just a few days back, the Galaxy S20 5G and Galaxy S20+ 5G for the US market were approved by the FCC. Now, the international model of the Galaxy S20 Ultra has picked up FCC approval as well. The device carries model number SM-G988B, which will be launched in all markets outside the US and China and will be powered by the Exynos 990 chipset. The Snapdragon variant for the US will feature model number SM-G988U, and that model is also likely to get FCC certification in the near future.

    Unlike the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+, the Galaxy S20 Ultra will come with 5G connectivity in every market. Even the Galaxy S20 5G and Galaxy S20+ 5G are expected to be more widely available than the Galaxy S10 5G was last year. Some markets will likely get just the LTE variant, but at this time there's no way to be certain. The only thing that is certain for now is that the top-end Galaxy S20 model will have 5G support as standard no matter where you might purchase the device.

    As you would expect for a phone that supports 5G connectivity and boasts of other high-end features like a 108MP camera, the Galaxy S20 Ultra won't come cheap. The device is rumored to have a starting price tag of 1,349 euro, or around $1500 USD, which will make it the most expensive Galaxy S flagship ever by a substantial margin. One can only imagine how costly the variants with more storage will be, especially the highest-end variant that's rumored to sport a whopping 16 GB of RAM.
